After early morning hotel pickup, travel with your guide to Chichen Itza, the city-cradle of ancient Mayans. During a 2.5-hour tour, explore this UNESCO site and gain insight into its top landmarks, including the Kukulkan pyramid, an astronomical observatory and the ball court. Learn about the dangerous game of pok-ta-pok played by warriors. You’ll also have free time to enjoy Chichen Itza on your own.
Take a break from sightseeing with a swim in Ik-Kil, an underground cenote, followed by a hearty buffet lunch. Combined time for the cenote and lunch is two hours.
Then, visit Valladolid, Yucatán’s third-largest city also called the Sultaness of the East. Spend 30 minutes getting to know the quiet 16th-century city.
Your 11-hour tour ends with drop-off back at your Cancun hotel that evening.
